    Default FourEyed Factoid of the day: Mustang vs. Capri Production #s

    Although production numbers seem to vary depending on source, there were more Ford Mustangs built in 1979 than there were Mercury Capris built during the entire 1979-1986 production run.

    Numbers vary on the 79 Mustang from between ~330,000 to ~369,000
    Numbers vary on the 79-86 Capri from between ~300,000 to ~350,000

    Yeah, I was sitting down with the stuff I have here, and saw two versions of numbers for both the Mustangs and Capris. I'm still not sold on who to believe, but I hadn't really thought of it that way until I had the numbers side-by-side...

    Chances are you've seen more 79 Mustangs than 79-86 Capris. Unless you live near me. We just blow all that to hell.

    My brother has a 79 coupe. God is it ugly. It's black with an orange vinyl top and an orange and black checkered interior.
